don't do it

at least not in the main forum sections

you wanna post a poll, do it in the superfan section where it won't bother the rest of us

FYI
Sorry, you do not have permission to use the polling feature. Only SuperFans may create and/or vote in polls.

rather annoying and actually kinda pisses me off that this can be posted in the main forum(s)

a bit like a slap in the face [Mad]

No I kind of agree, or at least make it so you don't have to vote to see the results, I don't currently have the ability to obtain a Superfan membership

I do, but I kinda want all of my money going towards a car right now. Government pay isn't really the best in the world until you have been there for more than 15 years, and even then you can make way more in the civilian sector.

I'm pretty sure Snaggy intends to have this working for everyone (to vote/view, not to make polls), but there are still some kinks to be worked out in UBB.

quoting Snaggy:
In the hopes of attracting more folks to SuperFandom, I've added the ability to create polls and vote in polls in all the Forums now (for SuperFans only though).

There may be a few other members who can vote and create polls still, (mainly older members), but eventually I will track you all down and extinguish that power.


It seems that non-Superfans will never be able to post or vote, then. I tried immediately, of course, to see if Snaggy had tracked me down, but he was just too darn quick [Wink] .

It's quite distressing, yes, but, to paraphrase Allan, c'est la vie. It's a nice touch for Superfans, and if it really annoys you, then don't bother reading those threads, I guess [ohwell]

Makes sense to me. I'll stop complaining. Maybe I can get a membership soon.

I think most of the Superfan's privillages can be seen as unfair, but only to those who havn't paid, in the beginning I saw their custom avatars as a slap on the face, but hey, they are paying and suporting this site. Money, in this world, seems to overway time spent anyday of the week. While it annoys me too I still have to deal with it.

I do think it might be nice to keep the polls in the superfan section only because we can't see or vote in a poll, therefor the entire thread is left pretty much useless to us.

I am deeply sorry if I offend Snaggy, Nitrozac, CT or anyone for that matter.

to me, changing for a special av is perfectly fine as it doesn't interfere with browsing the forum, or link to something deliberatly that we can't get to

It annoyed the hell out of me when I first started because I could not read certain convo's. But I fixed that by getting a membership and that was not hard because I enjoy reading and posting on here. I am sure Snaggy and Nitrozac meant nothing by making it a superfan feature only but there are perks everywhere when you have a membership as opposed to the ones that do not. It sucks but 6.95 per month are worth all the time I spend on here for all the privileges. [Big Grin]

It is only 6.95 but if my boyfriend knew that I actually paid, he would not be happy! Lol...he would say it could be better spent which is the issue with most cases for fans that cannot go to superfan stat.

sorry for the ramble...

edit:I do love my avatar though [hearts]

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Not really hun. Unfortunately that is how the world works. [shake head]

Example: you work at a company for x amount of years and one day your boss says you have to go. You soon find out that another person was hired in your place doing the exact same function for much less. Money talks in the world we live in. Not saying they are money hungry Snaggy and Nitrozac but they have to find a way to fund the site so people can register for free and post for free. Most forums that I see (could be wrong) do not even allow the capability of PM unless you come out of pocket for a membership.
